No Governors are Governors at any other school.

The Governing Body met twice termly during the Autumn and Spring terms.  Governors reviewed their Committee structure in February 2018, and agreed to continue with three Committees, which meet on a termly basis, and reduced the full Governing Body meetings to termly.  The Governing Body agree Terms of Reference for the Committees each year, in the Spring Term.

Governors are required to publish their attendance at full Governing Body meetings and Committee meetings for the last academic year.  This requirement also applies to Governors who have stepped down (or completed their four year term) in the last twelve months.  Governors no longer in post are listed at the bottom of the table below.
